Tuscan Turkey Burger

This is a mouthwatering Paleo recipe from my new cookbook !  I hope you have your copy and if you do please head over to Amazon and write a review!

When creating Tuscan flavors remember a few key elements. Tuscan flavors include a blend of fresh vegetables and herbs. Lightly sauté to bring out their flavors and textures. This will help you create true Tuscan dishes every time.

I love using ground turkey for my Tuscan burger. Go ahead and enjoy this flavorful burger on a chopped salad and enjoy!



  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup fresh arugula or fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • 6 leaves basil, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional


  1. In a large bowl add in ground turkey. Make a cup in the center of the turkey and drop in the egg and start to whisk. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Set aside!

  2. In a medium sauté pan over medium heat add in olive oil. Once hot add in pepper and onion then season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper.

  3. Sauté for 2 minute then add in garlic, arugula or spinach, basil, thyme and red pepper flakes for 1 minutes. Remove from heat.

  4. Once the vegetables are cool add to the bowl of turkey. 

  5. Mix well using your hands and create 4 burgers.  Heat your grill at a medium-high heat.


  6. Grill burgers for 6 minutes per side (flipping once) or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Enjoy!
